    I'm going to try these, but...The best local barbeque joint does a St.Patrick's Day corned beef and braised cabbage sandwich on rye Texas toast that is so mind-bendingly delicious it will make you WEEP. Easily a day's calories in one, but it takes two days to eat it and it's only once a year. - 3/6/2015   9:35:53 AM

    I agree, no diet for me, but a healthy lifestyle that I know I've tailored for myself and no one diet fits all. We all have to find our own way through the journey to healthy. But we can be encouraging and supportive of everyone on their own journey.

    My favorite corned beef and cabbage has carrots and potatoes and we always soak the corned beef to wash away a lot of the salt, then we always get a small corned beef in order to ensure we don't eat much of it, but there's no harm in enjoying a little of it and the cabbage does a lot for nutrients, too. So enjoy. Let's encourage and support each. I love SP! - 3/6/2015   5:14:59 AM

    Not sure what the problem is for BEACH_NUT... After all, one eating plan does NOT fit all, just as one size does not.

    Yes, the sodium content is high, but that can be compensated for over the course of the day. (And it's not much worse ounce for ounce than chips...) Also, not everyone is on a sodium restricted diet.

    Potatoes are a very good source for potassium for very few calories. Just eat the potatoes, forget the butter, gravy, sour cream, etc. I find plain boiled or nuked potatoes very tasty.

    I am quite surprised that SparkPeople posted these recipes for use. :O The recipes have such crazy high sodium content...that is so not good for ANY diet! Potatoes??? And, not to leave unmentioned...the grammatical errors are torture! Why not edited prior to posting?

    So disappointed with SparkPeople. *sigh* - 3/16/2014   12:58:15 PM

    Love corned beef. have cooked both in slow cooker and stove,later in oven. both are fine. Slow cooker takes all the guess work out of fixing. I always buy as much as freezer will store at St. patricks, for it is cheap. For the price of one sandwich can have a whole corned beef. Mix it up with different side dishes. - 3/16/2014   11:55:38 AM

    I love corned beef, but it's so expensive any other time of year that I usually buy enough to freeze some for another day. I fix mine the old fashioned way, in a stew pot. Seems to me I tried it in the crockpot once and it came out rather tough. I think after reading this now though, I may try it again this year. - 3/16/2014   6:29:48 AM

    My Irish MIL always cooked carrots, celery, turnips and parsnips along with the potatoes. She added the cabbage to the hot broth just long enough to cook it tender-crisp and still bright green. It is a delicious dinner. - 3/17/2011   8:51:12 PM
    LOVE corned beef n cabbage! I boil the meat for about 3 hours, then I take it out and put mustard and honey on it and bake a glaze on it while I boil the potatoes, cabbage, onion in the broth. YUMMY - 3/17/2011   4:54:25 PM

    We always have corned beef and cabbage. I did notice the first comment, I'd rather have ham, actually. I am Irish and Scottish, and always thought I was right on the money with the corned beef dish...goes to show you! - 3/17/2011   4:21:28 PM

    Just a point---I live in Ireland----we don't do corned beef and cabbage----that's American-----we do HAM and cabbage with boiled potatoes. :-} - 3/17/2011   1:33:56 PM
    Not really an Irish food, but we are having it anyway! - 3/17/2011   12:56:44 PM
    Thanks for the blog. Don't normally make corned beef and cabbage - for St. Pat's or any other day - although we do like it. But I'm always looking for interesting recipes to try. 'Tis the slow-cooker recipe I like me-self. Happy St. Patrick's Day! - 3/17/2011   9:14:17 AM

    I LOVE Corned Beef, but somehow I never think to make it until St. Paddy's Day! I'm going to try it in the crockpot this year. Erin go bragh! - 3/16/2011   4:40:35 PM
    My husband loves corned beef; but, it's not exactly "my thing." - 3/16/2011   2:53:34 PM

    Yep, its the flesh of a dead animal. That is what carnivorous and omnivorous animals eat. And most (but not all) humans are omnivorous!
